City of Ottawa View as the ramp to Terry Fox Drive departs from the freeway mainline.  Note that a pre-advanced sign was not installed on this overhead sign support in advance of the Eagleson Road interchange.  Although MTO's Book 8 is not exactly specific on when a pre-advanced sign is warranted on an overhead sign support, the lack of a pre-advanced sign in this location is not consistent with how other suburban freeways are signed in other regions of the province.

City of Ottawa The westbound advanced signage for Terry Fox Drive uses the incorrect advanced arrow sign.  A yellow "exit/sortie" bar should not be used on this signage because the right hand lane of the freeway is not forced as an exiting lane at the Terry Fox Drive interchange.  Instead, a new speed change lane develops downstream of this overhead signage for the exit.

City of Ottawa Two views looking easterly from the Eagleson Road overpass.  When the upper photos were taken in September of 2009, the Eagleson Road interchange marked the temporary western terminus of a multi-stage widening project that saw Highway 417 widened to six and eight lanes between Highway 7 and Highway 416.  The lower photo was taken shortly after the second and final stage of the project had been completed in 2014.
